Glasnevin ‘Limited Release’ Waipara Valley Pinot Noir 2016

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 21-Aug-2017
Even, dark ruby-red colour with slight purple hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is well-proportioned with intensely concentrated and deep aromas of savoury black cherry and berry fruit interwoven with dark herbs, a little earthiness and mineral suggestions, and whole bunch stalk and stem complexities, unfolding nuances of spice and violet florals. Medium-full bodied, the palate possesses an elegantly concentrated core of ripe blackberry and black cherry fruit melded with a layering of dark herbs and subtle whole bunch stalk notes. The fruit is firmly packed, and supported by fine-grained tannin extraction and structure, with balanced, ripe, soft acidity. The palate has depth and linearity, and carries to a fine, but firm, lingering finish of black fruits. The is a concentrated and intense black cherry and berry fruited Pinot Noir with complexing dark herb and whole bunch stalk notes on a fine-structured, firm palate. Match with lamb, beef and venison dishes over the next 6 years. Waipara Valley fruit indigenous yeast fermented with 35% whole bunches to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 14 months in seasoned French oak barriques. 18.5/20 Aug 2017 RRP $35.00
